Two great ladies of the stage enjoyed an emotion-packed backstage visit on February 4, when Kathleen Chalfant took in a performance of Wit, starring Cynthia Nixon. Chalfant won universal acclaim for creating the role of hard-nosed cancer patient Vivian Bearing in the play’s 1998 off-Broadway production, which was honored with the Pulitzer Prize. The ever-gracious Chalfant, now prepping to star in an off-Broadway revival of Tina Howe’s Painting Churches, paused to share a Hot Shot with Nixon backstage at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, where Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway debut production of Wit is currently in residence. For a double dose of great acting, see Nixon and Chalfant on stage this month!
